Mission statement

Our vision for the future continues to be an active contribution to ensuring access to and the quality of education and learning for all Slovenian citizens under the principles of free choice and equal opportunities. We believe that Slovenia's greatest comparative advantages are its self-confident, educated, learning citizens capable of dealing with changes and determined to change their living and working environment. Well-developed human, cultural and social capital are what contemporary society needs most to overcome crisis conditions and to foster smart, sustainable and inclusive growth in an atmosphere of cooperation and equality, in order to achieve the objectives of Europe 2020.

Main activities

SIAE is the main national institution for research and development, quality and education, guidance and validation, and promotional and informative activities in the field of adult education.SIAE drafts professional bases and evaluations, and monitors the development of the adult education system, develops various non-formal and formal forms of learning, develops programmes to improve adult literacy, and pays particular attention to improving access by vulnerable groups of adults to education and learning. In doing so, it develops the necessary infrastructure to support learning, develops models for the self-evaluation of quality and the validation of prior learning, and provides professional education and training for adult educators. The SIAE informs professionals and the general public about all of these processes and achievements, and contributes to the broader awareness of the importance and role of adult education.
